Palm Gets Sued, But It's Not About Patents
from the i-should-have-gone-to-law-school dept
With patent lawsuits a constant concern in the mobile device market, the headline “Palm being sued over Treo” might make you wonder what IP hoarder is looking for a handout this week. Fortunately for Palm, that’s not the case. Unfortunately for Palm, they’re being sued because some people allege the Treo, well, sucks. The class-action suit highlights a number of complaints about the devices, and says Palm’s done an inadequate job of taking care of the issues, and wants Palm to pay out restitution, replace peoples’ devices and pay out damages. Oh yeah, and also the fees of the lawyers — the inevitable winners here.
